Two LDS Named to National Wakeboard Team

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA -- Sheena and Lockey Price were named to the Canadian National Wakeboard team at the conclusion of this year's Pontiac Extreme Nationals held in Montreal, PQ, 30 August - 03 September, 2000.

Sheena Price, three times Provincial Champion was attending her third national tournament when invited to join the national team. She was invited along with first place finisher and returning team member Tiffany Finley from Ontario.

Sheena placed second to Jennifer Barker in the under 18 Category and second in the Open Women's Category. The top 10 women were invited to ride in the open finals. Sheena's run included spins, flips and rolls as she rode her Iconn wakeboard to the dock and then on to the podium. She was thrilled to be named to the national team and to have the chance to represent Canada at the world championships.

Sheena is 15 years old and attends Grade 10 at Lord Beaverbrook High School. She is a member of the McKenzie Ward, Calgary Alberta South Stake.

Lockey Price is the only returning male member of the Canadian National Wakeboard Team. The now two-time Junior National Champion clinched his second national Junior Championship and went on to place second in the open men category competing against the top 20 Canadian riders. When the finals were done he came in second to Quebec rider J.F. Gosselin. The top four male riders were invited to join the national team. Lockey was attending his fourth national championship. His past achievements include 1999 Junior Men's National Champion, third National Open finisher as well as sixth place at the World Championships that took place in Orlando, FL, last year.

Lockey is 18 years old and a Young Single Adult in the Fish Creek Park Ward, Calgary Alberta South Stake.

As members of the National Team they will attend the Wakeboard Worlds to be held at Lake Elsinore, CA, held 05-08 October, 2000.
